Is a 26-0 game in soccer excessive?

What constitutes an excessive blowout that crosses the line for good sportsmanship?
Earlier this season, the discussion was about Arroyo Valley girls basketball’s 161-2 win over Bloomington.
While it doesn’t involve a local team, but what about Hemet Tahquitz’s 26-0 boys soccer victory over Los Angeles Summit View West?
Which is worse? Well, the girls basketball game probably should never have been scheduled by the athletic directors, but the soccer was a Division 5 playoff game.
The girls basketball score was 104-0 at halftime, and the leading scorer in the game, Tamera Trigg, scored 43 points compared to her season average of about 27.
In the boys soccer game, it wasn’t reported what the score was at halftime.   Marcos Rojo led the way for Tahquitz with seven goals. He had scored only 11 on the season before that. But the team had 14 different players score goals, and two others had assists.
So are they both bad? And if so, which is worse? To be honest, I’d really need to see tape of both games. I’m sure something could’ve been done in both instances to hold the game down a little, but I don’t exactly know how excessive it was.
I once reported about the aftermath of a game now nearly 20 years ago, a girls soccer game between Bonita and Ganesha. I believe the final score was 19-0 in favor of Bonita, in a league game. The problem was, the  coach left his star player, Kendra Payne, in the game for too long and she set a CIF-SS record with 13 goals in the game (which I believe still stands).  The consensus seemed to be that this was excessive, because they were scoring goals just so Payne could get the record.
But 26-0 and 161-2? Whether excessive or not, it didn’t do the winning teams much good. Arroyo Valley girls basketball lost in the first round of the playoffs, while Tahquitz lost in the next round to Rialto. Did those teams get what they deserved? Some might say so, but I don’t think so, just that playing that kind of opponent isn’t really going to help in the long (or short) run.

Latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings

The latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings. Yes, Fontana is still not in it. I was told by the Fontana coach last week, that because he doesn’t subscribe to socalsoccer.org, he’s not able to input results, so his resume (at least according to that site) doesn’t look very impressive.

My thought: It seems like a weak excuse. If you look, many of the leagues are missing games.

Christian Nunez led San Gorgonio to win, hands Indian Springs first loss

Christian Nunez scored two goals for the San Gorgonio Spartans (7-6-6 overall, 2-2 league) in the San Andreas League victory, 2-1, over the Indian Springs Coyotes (10-1-5, 1-1-2). San Gorgonio

“We are better than our record would show. We just haven’t put it together until today,” said Spartans head coach Adrian Villalobos. “The San Andreas League is tough, anyone can beat anyone on any given day.”

Manuel Perez and Carlos Ortiz were each credited with an assist for the Spartans.
“Today, our offense was our best defense,” Villalobos said. “We out hustled them and we had a lot of possessions.”
The Spartans will play at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday against Rialto, who is in first place of the league. It will end the first round of league play.
Indian Springs
The game also resulted in the first loss of the season for the Coyotes.
The Coyotes were ranked No. 6 in the first San Bernardino Sun’s Top 10 Boys Soccer rankings of the season.
Indian Springs will look to bounce back in its next game, which is at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday against Jurupa Hills.

The first Sun soccer Top 10s of the year

Indian Springs (maroon) and Rialto are two of the Top 10 teams in San Bernardino County.

Ready or not, here are the first Top 10s for The Sun in boys and girls soccer.
In boys, I felt pretty confident with the order of the first 5, but there were a lot of teams pretty similar after that.
The girls was tougher. I have 4 Baseline League teams ranked, and 3 of them in the top 4, but all of those 3 have lost at least once in league. There should be plenty of movement.
Reminder, records and rankings are through Tuesday’s games

The Sun Boys Soccer Top 10
1. Chaffey (14-0-3)
Plenty of Mt. Baldy pitfalls to an undefeated season
2. Fontana (14-1-1)
How is this team not ranked in Division 2?
3. Ontario (8-1-4)
This team is used to making playoff runs
4. Alta Loma (17-2-1)
Might’ve had easier time in Baseline League
5. Redlands East Valley (12-2-1)
Halfway through league, only blemish is loss to 7th place Miller
6. Indian Springs (9-0-5)
There could be plenty of ties in the San Andreas League
7. Granite Hills (11-1-7)
as played 5 scoreless ties this year
8. Oak Hills (11-1-5)
Tied 2 of first 3 league games
9. Rialto (8-3-5)
0-2-2 in last 4 games, but 2 were vs. Alta Loma and Indian Springs
10. Summit (10-2-1)
Already surpassed last year’s win total
Others under consideration: Arroyo Valley (8-4-3), Bloomington (8-6-1), Chino (10-4-2)

Latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings

Below are the latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings. Take a look and see if you notice a paritcular San Bernardino County team missing from the rankings. I’ll post who I think has been overlooked below the rankings.

 

1-20 bsoccer 2

How about Fontana in Division 2? Fontana just suffered its first loss of the season, to Bloomington, but is 14-1-1 this season. One of Fontana’s wins was a 2-0 win vs. Riverside Poly, which is tied for No. 4 in the division. According to maxpreps.com’s state power rankings, Fontana is No. 13 in the state. Among all schools. In all Divisions. I’m just saying.
